All we know for sure is that after trading for Kaberle, the Bruins won the Stanley Cup.

Didn't he have the most assists among defenseman for that run, by the way? I seem to remember something like that.
Yep. He helped the transition game IMO. Not as much as we hoped, of course, but I still don't think he was that bad. Of course I'm glad we didn't keep him, but when some suggest the Cup was won with or without or him, or even despite him, that's ridiculous.

The past is never dead. It's not even past.
